Well, that’s quite an interesting pairing: dog sticker barking at The CAT – specifically, an Octave CAT synthesizer. Seen on
This one recently came in to
Thesis Audio for restoration. “We took in an Octave CAT for restoration the other day that had this sticker added to the back. I like it!” Anyone know what the source of the sticker?
I believe this is only the second time we have featured a dog in a synth in over twelve years.

We have long been interested in the OP-1, although we won’t have one ourselves. Maybe it would make a great instrument for Sam Sam 😸

Cat with the latest version of the Hertz Donut module from Industrial Music Electronics (formerly known as The Harvestman). Seen on
“Modular 8 presents Scott Jaeger, Saturday August 25, 1-5 PM! He will be showing off the brand new Hertz Donut Mk. III AND lecturing on Chiptune Synthesis.
Regarding the Hertz Donut MK3 demo 8/25 – @harvestman will also give a talk on chiptune history!
“I will lead off with a presentation about chip music ~30 minutes, then it gets into philosophy of square wave stuff, then probably seamlessly transitions into the HD3 demo.”
Sadly, this event is in the past, so we at CatSynth were not on hand. Hopefully, we will make it back up to Portland again soon…
